Lobo men’s basketball remains winless on the road

KRQE NM Sports Feed - December 6, 2017 - 11:18pm

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The location was different, but the result was the same. The Lobo men’s basketball team fell on the road at Colorado 75-57 Wednesday night. Shooting away from home has been a struggle for the Lobos and remained that way in Boulder. The Lobos shot just under 30 percent for the game and also struggled at the free throw line, shooting just under 36 percent.

Anthony Mathis led the Lobos in scoring with 15 points on 5 of 9 shooting. Mathis had the hot hand for the Lobos, shooting 50 percent from the three-point line. Colorado had three players in double figures led by Dominique Collier’s 18 points. The Lobos were outclassed on the glass once again as Colorado pulled down 58 rebounds to 30 for the Lobos.

With the loss, the Lobos dropped to 3-6 on the season. Colorado improved to 6-2. The Lobos will host rival New Mexico State at Dreamstyle Arena Saturday.

New Mexico Bowl coaches visit Duke City

KRQE NM Sports Feed - December 6, 2017 - 11:17pm

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The head football coaches involved in this year’s New Mexico Bowl made a quick stop in the Duke City to speak to the media Wednesday. Colorado State coach Mike Bobo and Marshall coach Doc Holliday will face one another on the football field Dec. 16. For Bobo and the Colorado State Rams, it’s a very familiar spot since they play New Mexico in conference games. Marshall will find their surroundings to be quite different when they return to the game.

Albuquerque is a long way from home and a place they are not familiar with. The opportunity to kick off the bowl season overshadows that. “It kicks off the bowl season on the national stage on ESPN against an excellent football team,” said Holliday. “So, anytime you can do that it is excellent exposure for your program and our kids are excited.” Bobo said he is 2-0 in Albuquerque and will stay at the same hotel with hopes of going to 3-0. “Any time you go to a place that is a little familiar you got a little bit of a routine,” said Bobo. “Your guys always tend to do a little bit better.” The New Mexico Bowl has a 2:30 p.m. kickoff time.

Lobo women’s basketball makes program history

KRQE NM Sports Feed - December 6, 2017 - 11:16pm

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M (KRQE) – Mike Bradbury and his Lobo women’s basketball team has done it. They have started the season at 10-0 for the first time in program history with a large crowd in attendance.

The Lobos reached the mark by thumping Texas Tech 90-56 Wednesday night. “You know I thought a big thing tonight was defensively our kids were really locked into the plan,” said Coach Bradbury. “You know, we really wanted to compete on the boards and we did that we ended up minus 1 and I thought that was huge.”

The Lobos turned 20 turnovers to 28 points while Texas Tech only scored two points off the Lobos 7 turnovers. “When we forced a lot of turnovers I could tell that they were super frustrated and like again everybody on the team helped with that,” said Lobos Center Jaisa Nunn. “We all went extremely hard.” Nunn scored 15 points and pulled down ten rebounds. It was her 6th double for the Lobos this season.

Mountain West Preseason Player of the Year, Cherise Beynon, had another big night. Beynon scored 21 points, pulled down 7 rebounds and had 4 steals with 6 assists. Tesha Buck added another 20 points for the Lobos. Brielle Blaire led Texas Tech in scoring with 10 points. The Lobos are home Sunday and will host undefeated Navy at Dreamstyle Arena. That game has a 1 p.m. start time.

UNM president addresses deficit plan to pay off Athletic’s debt

KRQE NM Sports Feed - December 6, 2017 - 5:35pm

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – UNM has been in a lot of trouble over their athletic department’s debt. Now they have a plan to pay it back.

The information surfaced after legislatures put the university’s acting president in the hot seat.

From fewer people in the stands and overestimating ticket sales, UNM Athletics is now in a pricey predicament, $4.7 million worth.

“How long have you been carrying this debt?” asked Legislative Finance Committee Chair Patricia Lundstrom.

UNM’s acting president Chaouki Abdallah replied, “Five to six years.”

There were a lot of questions for Abdallah and the Higher Education Department at Tuesday’s Legislative Finance Committee meeting.

“Was this deficit then just being carried from year to year?” asked Lundstrom.

Abdallah said the main issue the Athletics Department had was overestimating ticket sales. So, the committee made one big request: “Tell us how we’re gonna fix this.”

“There’s two ways that we can pay this thing… One is either by generating more revenues, the other is cutting more costs,” Abdallah replied.

The acting president said student fees have come into play before.

“In the past, Regents had raised student fees, with a portion of that going into athletics,” he said.

However, in the last five years, student fees for New Mexico residents have jumped over $300, and over 10 percent already goes to Athletics.

In the current plan, he said UNM is discussing with the Higher Education Department to use more revenue from ticket sales.

Another option according to Abdallah, “Transferring from other reserves, being able to pay off this debt, basically, so this debt is no longer going to be on our books.”

The committee chair wasn’t entirely thrilled with the plans.

“That tells me that we’re building budgets in this particular department, that doesn’t have any revenue to pay for it, plus carrying debt on top of it,” said Lundstrom.

Abdallah told the committee this year UNM has worked to better estimate ticket sales, and over the last few years, it’s been making cuts.

UNM said in November, the Board of Regents approved the transfer of funds to cover this year’s debt, around $1.3 million.

The deficit plan is not yet finalized. UNM will be presenting the plans to the Board of Regents in January, who would then have the final say.
